Can you believe it? I finally got paid. Up until the end of January I had only received part of my salary for the months of October, November, and December. And at that, they were late, and I had to bug a lot of people to get some money.
Ashley, a friend from Canada living in Strasbourg, came for a visit this past weekend. I took her around to the usual tourist sites (there aren't that many in Lille). Last night we went for dinner and I had lapin a la Kriek avec frites. The English translation being rabbit in a Kriek sauce (Kriek being a Belgian beer - this one without the traditional cherry flavouring), with fries. It was actually really good.
